The Jacksbnville Short Line.
A number tif ourcit'zvns got consider
ably agitated this vveekover n proposi
tioa to build a narrow gauge railroad
from Jacksonville to connect with the
main lino either at Medford or Cen

including engine, cars, etc., can be

that formerly operated a short line run

idents of Central Point precinct hare,
declared their willingness to takn morn

Either Central Point or Modford
could well afford lo build the road

Medford Charter. A bill parsed
the Legislature last session granting
tha town of Medford a charter and on
Wednesday last tin citizens of that
precinct toted on its approval result
ing in a vote of 76 in favor of its
adoption and 2 against. An election
for to n officers will bn held in ten
ilays after the last election Saturday,
.March 21st, when five Trustees, Re
corder, Marshal, Treasurer nnd. Street
Cminiinsioner will be elected. At a
former meeting of the citizens of that
place a majority declared their opposi
tion to being incorporated as a town
but the opposition must have changed
their tuiud as the vote in favor is al
most unanimous at this time. The
promise to hold liquor license donn to
$200 per year for four years is said to
have brought that element over to the
mpport of the charter, but our guess is
tbs.t those who niadtt the promiso will
make itgooJ by making the city license
$200, nnd adding this to the S300
county license, tha salwons will find
out that it will take 51,000 lacking
$500 to sell spirituous liquors in less
quantities than one gallon after tl.o
new law talcs effect.
The O'Neil Case The trial of
Lewis O'Neil for the murder of Lewis
McDauie! at Ashland in November
last came to" an end last Thursday
night by the jury finding defendant
guilty as charged in the indictment
murder in the Srst deg're. The trial
occupied the attentian of the court
over two etks, several special venires
being required to get the jury. Trie
verdict returned by the jury seems to
givo general satisfaction as public
opinion considers him guilty and the
findings are considered just and de
serving. A large crov.d was present
every day of the trial, showing that an
unusual interest was taken in the case
and on Thursday last when counsel on
each side argued their case, the num
lior increased, and in the evening when
Judge Hanna made tha closing argu
ment tha large court room was so
crowded that standing room was in
demand. After receiving the charge
of Judge Webster the iury retired and
in about one hour's time thereafter the
jury cam into court and pronounced
a verdict f "guilty as charged in the
indictment." The prisoner was re
mended to jail awaiting the action of
his attorneys in securing a new trial
and he will aot ba sentenced until all
these matters have been settled. This
has been one of the most expensive
tiials ever had in the county and a
little judicious hanging would probably
put a stop ta the causes that lead to
iuih case as this.

During the progress of the O'Neil
murder trial in this place many ladit
have been in constant attendance on

right aud proper as it tends lo sup

suits and murder trials, and is in con
sequence an advance step towards the
elevation of humauit). Several ladies
who have had an opportunity to ob
serve tho onerous duties entailed by
civil and political riuhts view the
suffrage question from a different
stand point, from which it appears
when only considering tha right of
suffrage. For this reason a careful
consideration of the complex and re
sponsible duty of Jury service should
be made by every woman in the land
so that they may be fully prepared for
the momentous responsibilities that
await, them when they shall have bo
come possessed of the much deaired
right of suffrage.

on cither side the letters EiS. taste,
fully interwoven inevergreens. At the

with friends and invited guests' and
while Mrs. Bolton played a wedding
nmrch, the bride and groom, preceeded
by their attendants, Mr. J. 0. Wblpp
and Miss Katie Slider entered and
took their places beneath the wedding
bell, iue ceremony which was per
formed by Rev. A. M. Russell of Ash
